2017 Volleyball Championship
Nov. 17-19 • Western Carolina • Cullowhee, N.C.


Playing in its first Southern Conference Championship final since 1995, the second-seeded ETSU Bucs swept No. 4 Wofford 3-0 (25-21, 25-12, 26-24) on Sunday afternoon inside the Ramsey Center to clinch the 2017 Southern Conference volleyball title and earn an automatic bid to the 2017 NCAA Division I Volleyball Championship. The SoCon title is the third in program history and first for the Bucs since 1992. The championship is the second for 15-year head coach Lindsey Devine, who guided the Bucs to the Atlantic Sun tournament championship in 2012. The Bucs swept all three of their games in the tournament.

The 2017 Most Outstanding Player, Milhorn finished with 10 kills in the match, eight of which came in the first set, and nine digs. It is the second consecutive year Milhorn has been selected to the all-tournament team. Fellow all-tournament team member Clayton led the Bucs with a double-double, finishing with 14 kills and 13 digs. 2017 Freshman and Libero of the Year Marija Popovic tallied a match-high 21 digs in the win. As a team, ETSU finished with a .252 attack percentage, including an impressive .326 in the third set.
